Roaming around Fisherman’s Wharf

We took the Lu back home yesterday.  She had such a great time, she didn’t want to leave.  I don’t blame the kid.

We also stopped by grandmas house to visit for awhile.  Gosh she’s so funny without even trying.  It’s always so nice to see her.  <3

One of Lu’s other Christmas experiences was going to Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey.  She’ll be back for spring break & summer vacation and we will probably stay clear of this hot touristy spot, so it was the perfect time to go.

I’ve never seen it at low tide which was kinda cool.

The wharf is filled with restaurants, cute little gift & candy shops.

These candy apples look amazeballz.  Plain caramel apple for me please.

Lu picked up a lollipop the size of her face for her BFF since kindergarten, which I think is SO cool. 

There’s a restaurant at the end of the wharf you can climb up a flight of stairs and check out some gorgeous views of the bay.

Well, I don’t think that’s supposed to happen…

We got there right as the sun was setting.  A perfect way to wrap up our time there.

Since I am cheap and didn’t want to pay for parking, we walked the scenic route along the trail.  It turned out to be a brilliant idea since we both love to walk.  Plus we caught a cotton candy sunset over the ocean.  This my friends, never get’s old.

What’s your favorite candy?

Anything sour & gummy, especially watermelon flavored. 

Watch the sun set or rise?  Choose one.

Rise.  I’m a morning person plus there’s something about a fresh start to a brand new day.  Major bonus points if you’re on a run.

How long have you been friends with your BFF?

Since I consider Mike my BFF, so over 10 years.  Ronda is my next BFF & we’ve been friends over 4 years, I think.

    Favorite Candy is probably reeces and swedish fish. OMG those m&m apples look awesome though, I have never seen those!

    Although I am still working on being a morning person, I would totally go for a sunrise anyday over a sunset. Fresh start and a new day.

    sour candy is the greatest kind. I may or may not have eaten a whole bag of soury candy at the movies last night ;) And Monterey is such a lovely place, sometimes I regret not going to school at CSUMB and running along such beautiful coastline.

    Great pics! Candy – NOTHING chewy, gummy or gooey – Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup or the round See’s Candy with sprinkles on it (mocha inside maybe? It’s the only one I eat in the whole box). Sunsets for me, wish I was a morning person. My guy and I DID see both sunrise (Atlantic) and sunset (Gulf of Mexico) on a trip to Florida a couple years ago though and that was freaking awesome. BFF… Mine for 30 yrs passed away a few years ago, but I have super GF’s of 8, 25 & 38 years. My guy is in a class of his own!

    I like all candy- sweet and sour. I have been on a sour patch kid kick for over a year now- the best of both worlds.

    My husband is my BFF and we have been together for 11 years. My other oldest BFF has been around for about 10 years.
